Riley Children’s Health anticipates an ongoing massive response will be required by healthcare providers on all fronts. Our hospitals, ERs, urgent cares and offices will be strained to treat the sickest patients and also provide care for patients outside of the COVID-19 crisis.
Primary care providers will continue to play a crucial role in this pandemic response. For us to keep up with demand, and save lives, we will depend in large part on primary care providers having capacity and resources to treat less acute patients throughout our communities. Thank you for your partnership.
Riley Children’s Health is supporting other hospitals who care for pediatric patients so those hospitals can focus on the evolving adult needs during the COVID-19 outbreak. As such, pediatric patients from the Level III NICU at IU Health Methodist Hospital have been temporarily relocated to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health or other appropriate level NICUs where they will receive the same or higher level of care.
Planning for organized transitions during this time ensures every patient receives the highest quality of care in the most suitable environment.
The maternity unit at IU Health Methodist Hospital remains supported by the highly skilled IU Health OBs and Riley maternal fetal medicine specialists, Riley neonatologists and Riley hospitalists. This ensures the best care for moms and babies during this temporary adjustment.
We are making temporary adjustments to pediatric units at IU Health North and IU Health West hospitals:
We continue to receive many calls from the general public about COVID-19. To avoid burdening hospital phone lines and diverting staff from COVID-19 preparations, we are asking our primary care partners in the community to help us direct these inquiries to the appropriate public health authorities and other trustworthy information sources, including:
If your patient is seen at Riley at IU Health for suspected COVID-19 (or any other condition), you will receive our standard follow-up communications regarding ER summary, admission, discharge, etc.
The clinical staff and providers at Riley at IU Health are trained on the identification, isolation and treatment of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. At this point in time:
The situation with COVID-19 is evolving rapidly and procedures for patient care will change as necessary to best protect patients, their families and staff.
Effective March 16, we’ve begun rescheduling all elective, non-urgent surgeries and procedures so that our care teams can be available for those patients who have immediate needs; Primary care and specialty follow-up visits may be rescheduled or be conducted over the phone, via a video visit.
All new referrals are being scheduled to open slots several weeks out, except for urgent/critical referrals which are reviewed on a case by case basis. Patients are encouraged to call their specialist if their symptoms worsen prior to their rescheduled appointment.
To help answer questions from patients and families, we’ve created an online resource center. There, you can find helpful information from our expert physicians about steps you can take to prevent the spread of the virus and how to a get a free screening if you suspect you have it.
We understand that these adjustments may have a major impact on the lives of our patients and families, and deeply appreciate your patience and understanding while our community is going through this public health emergency. As conditions are rapidly evolving, we may need to change patient care to protect patients, family and staff. We will keep you informed on those changes as quickly as we are able.
